    At least the G90 will have the V8 for a few more years.
    Genesis, Hyundai's premium arm, is putting an end to its Tau V8 engine. The naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter power plant is expected to be axed in the upcoming next-generation G80 sedan (spy images in the gallery below) which will be revealed in September of this year.

    In a report by Car and Driver, Genesis CEO Manfred Fitzgerald said that the second-generation G80, which start as a second-generation Hyundai Genesis before becoming rebranded as a standalone luxury brand, will keep its Lambda V6 engine to top its range.
    As a silver lining, the Tau V8 engine will continue to be used in the facelifted Genesis G90 for a few more years. In Korea, a naturally-aspirated legacy V8 engine is being sold with the updated G90 that produces 420 horsepower. But that's the end of the line for the V8 No turbocharging. No further developments. Nada. Zilch.

    "We really have to pay close attention to markets and legislation and hedge our bets. Don't expect another evolution of the V-8," Fitzgerald said to Car and Driver.

    So i'm thinking new GV80 (SUV) could also get new 3.5 l v6 TT (lambda III) as a top engine instead of Tau V8. It will probably have more torque and maybe same power.

    It will at least mean the G80 can be built in RHD as well as LHD - the V8 obstructed the steering column in RHD
